Traffic Ticket Georgia Reckless Driving Lawyer

In Georgia, the charge of reckless driving is one of the most serious traffic offenses you can be charged with. A conviction will trigger an automatic license suspension if you are under 21 years of age, and four points if you are Georgia drivers license holder. It also carries a negative connotation since many DUI charges are reduced to the same offense, leaving employers to wonder what the origin of your reckless driving conviction really was. The Reckless Driving Attorneys at Kunes Law Office know how address these serious cases with our decades of experience and knowledge of the driving laws of the State of Georgia.

Reasons You Were Cited For Reckless Driving

O.C.G.A. § 40-6-390 makes it a crime to "drive any vehicle in reckless disregard for the safety of persons or property."

Although many jurisdictions will only charge you for reckless driving based upon high speeds once you reach 100 mph, any offense of 24 miles over the speed limit can support a reckless driving charge. Other driving actions that would potentially trigger a reckless driving charge include weaving in and out of traffic, passing in a no passing zone, passing on the shoulder, driving on the wrong side of the road, tailgating at high speeds, driving too fast for conditions, or disobeying traffic control devices. There are many other behaviors which could potentially lead to a charge, as reckless driving is in the eye of the beholder, since it is based upon the opinion of the law enforcement officer that cited you.
